"Valerie Schmidt"

"Oni is a star shinning on the Philadelphia area. Her brightness is enough to light up the earth - how fortunate we are that she delights us with her "sparkle" and "shine." I laughed till I cried, and was brought to pensive contemplation. That's what the evening with Sister Wings was for me. What a talent!" - Downingtown News, PA
